Houston Rockets 'parting ways' with Carmelo Anthony

For a team with championship hopes, it seems a bit silly for the Houston Rockets to be happy about being.500.

Carmelo Anthony has been bouncing around the Western Conference over the past couple of years after he forced his way out of NY, and the San Antonio Spurs have been talked about as the next potential landing spot for the former superstar.

Carmelo Anthony is parting ways with the Houston Rockets just 13 games into his tenure with the franchise, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. "Pop would tell you, we went through stuff back then". You think you saw something before?

Houston enters tonight's game against Golden State with a 6-7 record having won two straight games over IN and Denver. "There's no getting around that. It's a long season and this is a tough stretch we're dealing with". That would be the first season in his National Basketball Association career in which he'd average fewer than 20 points per game. Both teams cleared their benches a couple of minutes after that. We won without you. "We're taking an individual challenge and the team challenge of guarding and offensively we're just sharing the basketball and obviously we're knocking down shots".

In addition to his toe injury, Green was suspended one game by the Warriors for a verbal confrontation with Kevin Durant on Monday night.

Head coach Steve Kerr revealed that the team had a short meeting prior to the shootaround which addressed several issues including the altercation between Durant and Green. "When I say careless, I don't mean not a care in the world, but that joy that we always talk about". I think along with J.J. 'I wear my emotions on my sleeve. Sometimes they get the best of me.

For his career, Anthony has averaged 24.0 points per game, 6.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists across 1,064 games with the Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Thunder and Rockets.

Yet D'Antoni felt it was not fair to keep the 34-year-old around in a reduced role, having attempted to "hit a home run" with the signing. He was great while he was here.

It's been widely speculated that a major reason behind the argument between Green and Durant hinged on Green venomously saying Durant's just going to leave the Bay Area at the end of this season and that the two-time Finals MVP is dragging his free agency decision into the season. Yeah his shooting has been just plain bad so far this season (28% from 3, 0-5 from deep tonight) but the way he finds cutters and throws lobs is just awesome and I can't wait to see him grow into his powers. I will live with that because it works in my favour to the good as my résumé speaks and this team résumé speaks, more so than it doesn't.
